(Quick Take) Drawing Virtual Gardens- Heartbeats of a Premature Image

For Heartbeats of  a Premature Image, Drawing Virtual Gardens (sound artist and multi-instrumentalist David Gutman, one half of the ambient duo Tropic of Coldness) employs heavily processed guitar towards hazy layers of sound design, alternately bleeding (check “115.31 bpm”) and brittle (2 minutes into “98.36 bpm”), chilly (“74.64 bpm”) and volcanic (“116.11 bpm”). As the cover suggests, it brings to mind glowing imagery of shifting, emulsifying rivers. From time to time, fragile melodic fragments dance across the surface, but for the most part, it is zoney drones from here on out. This one comes recommended highly to fans of dark ambient sounds dynamic in assemblage and approach.
